Key Benefits of Photonics

Where today’s traditional technologies are reaching their limits in terms of speed, power, and accuracy, photonics provides new and unique solutions. Photonics has a significant influence on our everyday lives.

Fremont, CA: The science and technology of light is known as photonics. Generating, directing, controlling, amplifying, and detecting light are all part of it. It’s also the driving force behind many of the advances that have changed the way we live in the last few years.

Photonics21 is a European Technology Platform that serves photonics research priorities. Its goal is to create a shared approach among European industry, research, and policymakers. Photonics21 and the European Commission have signed a public-private agreement to fund and advance this vital part of European science and industry.

Here are three uses of photonics:


Since light can detect and quantify diseases quickly, sensitively, and accurately, photonics has the potential to revolutionize healthcare.

The use of light-based technology in bio and medical sciences is known as biophotonics. It can be used to diagnose diseases very early using non-invasive imaging methods or point-of-care applications.

Biophotonics is also useful for analyzing processes at the molecular level, which allows for a better understanding of disease origins and the development of new therapies. From pacemakers to synthetic bones to endoscopes to micro-cameras used in in-vivo processes, photonic technologies play an essential role in meeting the needs of our aging population.

Lighting and Energy Savings

Advanced lighting technology, such as Solid State Lighting (SSL) for general lighting applications, also uses photonics. SSL is focused on the technologies of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and organic LEDs (OLEDs).

SSL lighting is of higher quality and leads to significant energy savings. Intensive manufacturing and research efforts are underway to improve SSL performance, especially in energy efficiency and quality, thus lowering costs.

The EU agreed to zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 as part of the European Green Deal. Lighting accounts for around 19 percent of global electricity use, so more energy-efficient lighting will save a lot of money.

Broadband Internet

The need for quicker, more open, dynamic, and environmentally friendly broadband networks drives EU optical data communications research policy. The drastic increase in power consumption on the network, data centers, and servers has prompted research in this field. The goal is to make data communications quicker, cheaper, and more energy-efficient while allowing for traffic growth, rapid network changes, and varying traffic demands.
